The James Connolly Albany Rebels would like to express our sincere gratitude to our generous sponsors in 2017.
This year was a big year for the Rebels. 2017 witnessed the revival of competitive football in Upstate New York with the New York Cup contested by the Rebels, the Syracuse Gaels, and the Buffalo Fenians. The Rebels won the Montreal Junior Men’s tournament for the first time, an achievement that would not be possible without the support of our community.
It made such a huge difference to us this year to have a new jersey sponsor. That combined with the support of the Irish organisations (State and local), and the support of local businesses allowed us to concentrate on developing the team and club.
It remains our goal that the support we receive is paid back to the community as we advance Irish sports, language, and culture.
